    Help Needed With Study into Proposed Reversal of Spinal Cord Injuries

    Help Needed with Study into Proposed Reversal of Spinal Cord Injuries


    In order to convince a sceptic Medical Profession, I need to repeat an earlier pilot study, which has shown to be highly productive in reversing spinal cord injuries.

    I have been researching the effects of gravity on spinal cord injuries since 1994 and have already proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that even complete spinal cord injuries dating back as much as 18 years can be reversed to some degree!

    I want to share my information with people suffering from spinal cord injuries in the hope that some of you may want to help me with my research, by assisting me with a study.

    The intervention is non-invasive, does not involved drugs, has been shown to work! And needs to be tested on a larger scale now.

    My discovery is in how gravity drives the cerebrospinal fluid, induces nerve regeneration, and facilitates effective guidance to regenerating nerves. This is achieved by altering posture to make use of gravity and can repair a large amount of the damage in complete / incomplete spinal cord injuries. However, this does not solely relate to spinal function and a vast amount of other benefits have been reported, namely restored bowel and bladder function, increased metabolism, reductions in infections and particularly urinary infections. A general decreases in pain. However, during nerve regeneration, people have reported a temporary increase in pain.

    My work is currently under review by.

    I Just Noticed The Date: Perhaps I Should repost again Tomorrow, in order to confirm that this is not a hoax.

      Sounds interesting Andrew. Thanks for letting us know about this.

        The intervention is simple, but very effective. First 3 people with complete spinal cord injuries that tried this have experience unprecedented results. John Caan walked after ten years of paralysis. He did it on Carlton Television News In Devon and astonished everyone including me.

        This is a winner! and free for everyone to try.

          Andrew how the man explain his feeling came back is how my sons came back he said it felt like someone was pinching his legs and it worked its way out his toes.I'm going to try raising his bed how long till people seen improvement?

            It takes about four to five weeks for it to kick in, but your son will notice changes in urine, body temperature, energy levels within the first four weeks. Thes may only be minor changes at first, but should be obvious. Also might get a reduction in spasm and pain fairly early.

              Greetings

              For starters, what quad doesn't have a bed that has the option to raise the head up and down ?
              I don't know anyone who spends all their time in bed laying horizontally.
              Second, why wouldn't being up in your chair half the day help ?
              Sorry to be skeptical, but this makes no sense.

                Does your nervous system start at your head and go right down to your toes? Why then would raising the upper part of a bed, which folds in the middle, leaving the legs flat or even raised fascilitate gravity running from head to toe through the fluids? Same applies to sitting posture. Wheelchair posture sux, when it comes to assisting circulation. Great for keeping you in a wheelchair if you get my drift.

                Its the angle of the whole body that counts in this therapy. Understanding how gravity, undoubtedly drives the circulation through every single cell in the body together with the bulk flow fluids, makes all of this sensible.

                I do have case histories to back this up, and I don't expect everyone to take part in this study that reads the information

                But rest assured, this simple therapy has a powerful affect on a damaged spinal cord.

                I wish you well what ever direction you choose to go in and it is your right to make whatever choices you want, and I respect whatever decision you decide on.

                  So do you mean perhaps using a tilt table to stand up with ?

                    Andrew, I read your very entertaining article entitled "The Importance of Gravity to our Health and Wellbeing, and its relation to Sleep and Rest."

                    Very entertaining. I had lots of chuckles. What were you smoking when you wrote that? Bill

                      It may interest you to note that the Ancient Egyptian beds found in the tombs of the third and fourth dynysty sloped by slightly more than five degrees to the horizontal, confirmed by a member of an egyptology group, who has one of these beds in her museum. They have a footboard on to stop people sliding down the bed presumably. Why ?

                      The Dead Sea Scrolls, also reveal that the ancient Essenes, believed that the flow of blood relates to the flow of sap in trees and the flow of rivers etc. They even mention laying in a stream of life with the water flowing over your head and down through your feet? They lived to be around a hundred and twenty years and had uncanny resistance to infection and disease. Could they have slept on an incline I wander?

                      During the tudor period, there was an illness called the sweating sickness, which along with the deaths of countless hundreds of thousands throughout Europe, took the life of the King.

                      Within 24 hours of contracting the illness, you were dead! They didn't have antibiotics in those days. In order to stop people from dying, they reverted to placing two guards by the side of their beds, presumably to stop the occupant from laying down. These guarded people often survived. Many of the beds around this time were very short, around four feet six inches long. Tzar Peter the Great for instance, A very tall man, slept on one such bed, presumably in a sitting position.

                      Always nice to quote some prior work :-)

                      Bill if you had a lot of chuckles, perhaps you was the one smoking something other than tobacco?

                        No one hd a tilt table in the UK, but a tilt table would be a valuable asset in this study, affording higher angles during both day and night, without applying pressure to the soles of the feet, as with a standing frame. In the UK we just used blocks of wood under the bed at the head end, in order to produce a slope from head to toe.

                          Andrew,

                          Have you been able to study the effects of this sleep system on able bodied people? It would seem to be logical thinking to show improvements over minor chronic ailments in preliminary stages...just my thinking and I admit to not reading every word of your work yet. Also, I think there may be some confusion about the way the bed would actually look...could you attach a picture to your post?

                          Thanks,

                          Mary

                          ...and she lived happily ever after...

                            Hi Mary

                            My wife and I were first to try this and then my two sons, my mother and father and many more relatively able bodied people. In an earlier study, invloving people with multiple sclerosis, many who took part shared their beds with able bodied partners,and we had some interesting reports from them also.Many of who, will never be sleeping falt again :-)There is a bed picture and instructions which I will be sending out to everyone that has joined us. Together with more supporting evidence and case histories of people with spinal cord injries, who have tried this and experienced significant improvements.

                            Kind regards

                            Andrew

                              It is the policy of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Resource Center (PRC), a Program of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, to collect information resources relating to quality of life issues for individuals living with paralysis. The PRC is building an online library catalog which will be made public in the near future.

                              Our response to individuals who contact us with new information or sources is to send us a copy. This response in no way indicates that the information or source is under review as stated in Mr. Fletcher's email. The process that the PRC and the Foundation uses to review Quality of Life or Research grants is not the same as collecting information for our library collection.
